I wanted to be more clear on the urgency of the environmental crisis of climate change.
Enjoyable reading for a 70 yr old new activist such as me, with the bees and honey story helpful. Liked it a lot and will look at other materials by Bill McKibben.

This book chronicles the life of an environmental activist. It offers an interesting look into Mr. McKibben's life and how he manages to mobilize and educate so many people not only across America, but also globally for his cause in fighting CO2 emissions. There are many recent examples of places all over the world that have experienced climate change throughout his book. His tale also includes references to the life of the honeybee. In particular, the fight zeroed in on protesting the contruction of the Keystone XL Pipleline and he recommends stock portfolios divested of oil companies.
